Nearly 760 Business Students Earn Degrees from Nebraska

Class of 2024 May Commencement Ceremonies Award Business Degrees
Nearly 760 Business Students Earn Degrees from Nebraska
The University of Nebraska–Lincoln College of Business is set to confer nearly 760 degrees to students this weekend at commencement ceremonies held at Pinnacle Bank Arena on May 17 and Memorial Stadium on May 18.

At two University of Nebraska–Lincoln Commencement ceremonies at Pinnacle Bank Arena and Memorial Stadium this weekend, nearly 760 business students will receive their degrees and become the newest Husker alumni. Doctoral and master's degrees will be awarded at the Graduate Commencement at 3 p.m., Friday, May 17, in Pinnacle Bank Arena, and bachelor's degrees will be conferred at 9 a.m., Saturday, May 18, in Memorial Stadium. Chancellor Rodney D. Bennett will preside over both ceremonies.

“Most of our May graduates started college during the pandemic, or their research, careers and lives were challenged or disrupted. If there is any class that has embodied the university's motto, 'In Our Grit, Our Glory,' it is the Class of 2024,” said Kathy Farrell, James Jr. and Susan Stuart Endowed Dean and professor of finance. "As alumni, we know they will continue to drive discovery, create opportunity and lead the future of business wherever they go next — in Nebraska or around the world."

A software engineer for Garmin smartwatches, Jared Yost, '20 alum from Olathe, Kansas, is among the 58 professionals receiving their degrees from the highly-ranked, high-return-on-investment MBA@Nebraska program. He plans to apply what he's learned to his career right away.

"A degree from Nebraska is the key to a world of opportunity. I look forward to leveraging the knowledge I gained through my MBA program to begin contributing to my organization's success in more of a decision-maker role," Yost said.

Receiving her bachelor's degree in actuarial science on Saturday, Pyper Haarala from Elkhorn, Nebraska, said she found the best part of being a Husker is "being part of an inclusive, kind and generous community." After graduation, she will combine her interests in health care and risk management as a senior actuarial analyst at Cigna Group in Denver, Colorado.

"Graduating from Nebraska is the first step in fulfilling my dream of improving health care accessibility. The connections I made within the Nebraska Business Honors Academy will stay with me for a lifetime. The opportunity to learn beside such driven individuals taught me the importance of perseverance, integrity and friendship," she said.

With bachelor's degrees in finance and economics, Mariano Azurduy from Tarija, Bolivia, will work on Wall Street as an investment banking analyst at Jefferies in New York City.

"As an international student, graduating from Nebraska opened up countless doors for me, not just in career opportunities worldwide thanks to its globally recognized reputation, but also in personal growth. Studying abroad transformed me. It also connected me to a global alumni network that continues to support my professional journey with endless opportunities and sage advice. Most importantly, achieving this milestone means I can inspire others back home to chase their dreams and perhaps set a new standard for future generations in my community," Azurduy said.

Recent graduates can also take advantage of a program that aims to help remove possible financial barriers to those seeking to enhance their skills and employability.

"We recently launched the Nebraska Graduate Advantage Program (GAP) to save 15% in graduate tuition in our online Master of Science in Business Analytics and Supply Chain Management programs. The special savings are available to those who earned their bachelor's degree from UNK, UNO and UNL in the last five years with a GPA of 3.2 or higher," said Farrell. "This opportunity helps meet the workforce needs in Nebraska and nationwide for workers with these in-demand, relevant technical skills."

The ceremony will be available to watch online at the Commencement website. For more information about the event or to watch it live, visit:
